Golf Course History

Golf Course History

We value exceptional golf experiences.

Rising from an old citrus grove, the course at Pointe West was developed in 1999. Golf course architect John Sanford had a vision for a uniquely sculpted course, and countless tons of earth were moved to create elevated tees, elevated landing areas, peaks in fairways and elevated greens. Striking bunker complexes were created to highlight subtle mounding and some unique features were incorporated to extenuate several “risk/reward” situations. Most notably the 18th fairway is traversed by a water feature just short of the green making for an exciting moonlighting finishing hole. A testament to the variety of holes created by Sanford is Pointe West’s par 5s. Both the second and the ninth holes are reachable in two solid shots; the tenth hole requires two long strategically placed strikes to get home and the mammoth 598 yard 16th is a true three shot test.

Multiple tees throughout the course ensure an enjoyable yet challenging game for golfers at all levels. We are well known for the exceptional quality of our greens and the dedication to an excellent golf experience each time you play.
